The heat of sauna room can promote muscle growth and longevity. The release of HGH is only a way to increase muscle growth by high temperature conditioning. It also reduces the amount of protein degradation that occurs naturally during muscle use and waste. Therefore, this will increase protein synthesis in muscle and ultimately promote muscle growth.
Interestingly, one of the mechanisms by which heat stress prevents protein degradation is by triggering heat shock proteins (HSPs), which are used by cells to counteract potentially harmful stimuli. Whenever cells are exposed to unfriendly environments, DNA isolates in certain regions and begins to read genetic codes to produce these stress proteins. HSP is actually beneficial in preventing and repairing damaged proteins. As Dr Patrick explains, nominal heat shock proteins (or HSPs) are caused by heat and are the main examples of hormones. Intermittent exposure to heat causes hormonal responses (protective stress responses), promotes the expression of shock factors called heat genes, and subsequent HSPs involve stress resistance.
Therapy can even induce heat shock proteins, which help prevent rhabdomyolysis. Severe degenerative muscle tissue condition is one of the most common side effects associated with the use of statins as cholesterol-lowering drugs. If you suffer from muscle damage, you may be immobilized for a long time, which usually causes your muscles to begin to atrophy. It has been shown that in an animal study, muscle atrophy during relaxation reached 32% under hyperthermia. Whole body heat treatment can not only prevent muscle atrophy, but also increase muscle regeneration and HSP level. Dr. Patrick explained that during the injury, you may be fixed, but you can sit in the sauna room to improve your HSP, which is a clear victory for the wounded and the rehabilitation department.
HSP can prevent damage by scavenging free radicals directly, and it can also support the antioxidant capacity of cells by maintaining the role of glutathione. HSP can repair wrongly folded proteins to ensure that they have the right structure and function.
The results showed that heat shock proteins expressed steadily when rats were exposed to intermittent heat rest compared with the control group, and muscle regeneration increased by 30% compared with the control group. The expression of heat shock proteins lasts for up to 48 hours after hyperthermia. Even without exercise, the expression of heat shock proteins may be higher. When you exercise, heat acclimation may cause HSP to release more than normal.
Dr Patrick said: "This is the best proven example of how a person can theoretically use the thermotherapy conditions in a dry steaming room to increase his heat shock protein and get rewards, including muscle growth and so on. Equally exciting is that heat exposure has been shown to increase the lifespan of flies and worms (up to 15%) due to HSP. A specific HSP (HSP70 gene) is also associated with increased longevity, suggesting that there may be anti-aging benefits for normal heat stress.
